Album Notes
Imagine sleepwalking through your existence, numbed out, when slowly you being awakening to life and the simple pleasures around you -- feeling the sun on your skin, hearing the rain, embracing the moonlight, learning to love and be loved. This is the theme of jazz singer and songwriter Julie Lavender's latest album, NEVER FELT THE SUN.

Although Lavender feels this recording is an autobiographical "life painting" that traces her personal journey of "awakening to life and love," she uses her experiences to explore universal themes. On this collection of mostly original songs, she renders portraits of deepening intimacy, the call to stillness, the passion of children, the wonder of nature and the search for a vibrant relationship with our Creator.

All of this is expressed musically in a fresh blend of jazz, classical and popular elements that are artfully woven together with Julie's pure, soothing voice to create a rich tapestry of sound that is both sophisticated and intimate.

NEVER FELT THE SUN features legendary broadway songwriter Hugh Martin ("Have Yourself and Merry Little Christmas", "The Trolly Song") accompanying Julie on one of his songs ("Here Come the Dreamers")which he arranged specifically for her.

The album also features jazz greats such as flutist Hubert Laws (The Jazz Crusaders, Mongo Santamaria, Jim Hall, James Moody and Clark Terry), keyboardist, sax-player, producer and arranger Kamau Kenyatta (Hubert and Eloise Laws, Patti Austin and Earl Klugh)and Guitarist, Peter Sprague Kevyn Lettau, Bob Magnussen, Billy Childs, David Benoit). Julie also plays guitar and piano on several tracks.

Loved the rich sounds, thought provoking writing, and expressive vocals in the project.


Never Felt the Sun
Love this CD. The blend of influences intrigues me and the songwriting is fresh and engaging. Julie's voice along with the likes of jazz legend Hubert Laws make this a special album.
